TO THE MEMBERS 0¥ THE BAI^NATYNE CLUB. 



When I first undertook to print the llegister of Dryburgli for presentation to 
tlio Club, I had never seen it, and was not at all aware of its vcry imperfoct 
and defective state. 

On examining the proof-sheets, I perceived that it not only wanted f-ome 
of the earhest Charters, which it must have originally contained, and among 
these the Foundation Charter, but that it broke oif abruptly, before the suppres- 
sion of thc Monastery ; and that, in the grcater number of the Chartors and other 
dceds which the Register still contains, the dates, and the nanies of the witnesses 
are omitted, wliich considerably diminishes its usefulness. 

It disappointcd me to think that my contribution to the Club should be so 
iiicompletc ; and I determined, though it might cost some troublc and expense, to 
eudcavour, as far as possible, to supply the defects of the Register, by obtaining 
permission to inspect the repositories of the several pcrsons who now possess lands 
formerly belonging to thc Abbey, in order to recover and make copies of sucli 
original Charters and other writings relating to it as might still be in cxistcnce. 

In doing this I had no difficulty. Bcing unable personally to makc this 
inspection, I obtained the wilHng assistance of MrWiUiam Fraser of Edinburgli, 
a gentleman well qualified for thc task, from his intimate acquaintancc with ohl 
writings, and from his zcal and intelligenco in antiquarian research. Through 
him inspection Iias been madc of the titlc-dccds, &c. of Thc Duke of Rich- 
mond, Thc Earls of Mar, Buchan, and Laudcrdalc, Lord Pohrarth, 8ir Wyndham 
Carmichacl Anstruther of Anstruther and Carmichael, Baronet, David Erskino 
Esquire of Cardross, James Haig Esquire of Bemcrside, Charles Riddell Esquirc 
of Dryburgh, James Erskine Esquire of Shielfield, James Curle Esquirc of 
Ivclaw, Adam Fairholme Esquire of (St John's) Chapcl, George Turnbull Esquire 
of Abbey St Bathans, and of my brother Lieutenant-Colonel George Spottis- 
woode of Ciladswood, to all of whom I return my thanks for their courtesy. 

Every source that could be thought of to complete tlie Rcgister has bccn 
explored, and the result of the search will be found in the Appendix, which con- 
tains original Charters, Gifts, Tacks of Teinds, &c., and several old Rentals of 
the Abbey, whicli are curious, and may bo found useful in assisting to show the 
changes produccd by time on the value both of land and of money.

THE PREFACE. 



THE EDITOR'S PHEFACE. 



The Register of tlie Premonstratensian Abbey of Dryburgh, called the 

" LiBER S. Mari.13 de Drtburgh,'" from which the prescnt edition has Liber dk 

been printed, is a sniall folio volume of paper, containing one hundred 

and twelve leaves, and written in a hand of the sixteenth century. On 

a blank leaf at the commcncement, it is titled, in the well-known hand- 

writing of Sir James Balfour, " Liber S. Marice de Dri/brughe, 1635," and 

at the foot of the first remaining page, it is authenticatcd with the sub- 

scription — " Jacobus Balfourius KynardicB Miles Leo Armorum Rex." 

It has also been paged by him ; and it is probably as complete now as when 

it was in his possession. 

It is to be regretted, however, that the Register is an imperfect col- [mperfcction 
lection. It commences with charter No. 6, and concludes abruptly in the ter. 
middle of a charter, No. 316. Thc first fivc charters which are wanting 
may havc occupicd two leavcs of the volume, and amongst them, probably, 
was thc foundation-charter of David I., as it was usual to commence the 
registers of religious houses with thcir foundation charters. There are no 
means of ascertaining how many charters are wanting at the cnd.

iv THE PREFACE. 

In addition to these defects at tlie commencement and conclusion of the 
Register, it is also to be regretted, that in thc greater number of the charters 
and instruments which it contains, the namcs of the witnesscs are entirely 
omitted ; and that numerous errors occur in the names of persons and 
places.'

The most palpable of such errors have been corrected in the present edition. Others 
which are suspceted have been sufFered to remain. For instance, Eohertus de Morville 
appearing as a benefactor at a time -svhen Ekardus was the known person of tho faraily, 
leads to a doubt that the Transcriber may have mistaken tlie initial letter of R. in the 
original charter, for Robertus, instead of Eicardus. Again, in No. 243, where the bishop is 
reserving dues froni the church of Gullane, the words, " quatuor marcis nomine procurationis 
nostre et quatuor marcis nomine canonicorum," plainly contain some mistake, and there is 
reason to believe that the scribe has written canonicorum for cani nostri : The Nuni- 
bers of charters in the present editiou do not correspond with the MS. volume after 
No. 89 : the next number, instead of having been madc Xo. 90 in the MS., had V,een by 
raistake raarked 100, so tliat this makes au apparent diflerence of ten morc in the MS. tlian 
in the print.

and others, — as well as charters, tacks of terads, &c., by the Abbots and 
Commendators, Rentals of the Abbey, and Accounts of the Chamberlain, 
have been rccoverod from private rcpositories, and printod in the Appendix. 

With all the imperfections of the Registcr, it is still a rccord of great 
vahie, not only for the information it contains relating to the immediate 
district in which the Abbey is situated, but also as to the carly holdino-s 
of lands, churchcs, and patronages in the counties of Fife, Ayr, Lanark, 
and thc Lothians. 

Doubts have been cntertained as to the real foundcr of Dryburgh Abbey. The FouiuW. 
David T. styled liimself, and he has been generally considered, as the 
founder. In his great charter he gives, grants, and confirms — " Ecclesifp 

Sanctee Marite de Dryburgh, quamfundavi" "Eccleslam de Dry- 

burgh," &c.' But the contemporary Chronicle of Meh-oso calls " Hugo dc 
Morville fundator Ecdesie de Driehurg."- 

These conflicting statements have given rise to ingenious interpretations 
of the meaning of the expression "quam fundavi," In the foundation 
chartcr. Lord Hallcs conjectures that the King tliereby meant only that 
he had laid tlte foundatlon stone.^ On the other hand, the author of Cale- 
donia tlilnks the charter better evldence than the Chronicle,'' and that David 
was thc founder of the Abbey ; yet Chalmers himseh", in his account of the

THE PREFACE. 



De Morvillcs, states tliat Hugb "was the original founder of tlie monastery 
of Dryburgh."' 

Whether by the King or his High Constable, the abbey of Dryburgh 
was foundecl for moiiks of the Premonstratensian order in the year 1150. 
" Anno 1150, Ordo PrEcmonstracensis venit ad Druebufch, ad festiuitatem 
Sancti Martini " (November 10.)^ They were brought from the abbey of 
Ahwick, which was itself a daughter of the abbey of Neuhus, the first 
foundation of the order in England.^ The Chronicle of Melrose farther 
bears : — " Anno 1152, Conventus venit ad Driburgh dic Sancte Lucie'"* 
(Decembcr 13th.) 



' Caledonia, vol. i. pp. 503, 4. The munifi- 
ocnce 01 David I. to the clmrch is proverbial. 
As Hugh de Morville appears to have been 
the earliest benefactor, if not the actual 
founder, of tlic Abbey of Dryburgli, it niay 
not be out of place to give a short account 
I. p. 503. 4. of him from the Caledonia: "Among thc 
English settlers in Scotland, not one was 
more early in his attachment, or rose to 
greater eminence in the state, than Hugh 
Morevillo, vvho came from Burg, in Cumber- 
land. Undor David, he accjuired vast pos- 
sessions in Lauderdale, in tho Lothians, and, 
above all, in Cunninghame, along the northern 
bank of the river Irvine. Laider liis munifi- 
ceut master, Hugh de Moreville became Con- 
stable of Scotland, which office descended, 
liereditarily, through a long succession of 
illustrious heirs, both male and female. He 
was the original founder of the monastery of 
Dryburgh, and he died in 1162. By Beatrico 
de Bello-Campo, his wife, he left Richard de 
Morville, wlio enjoyod lus high office and 
great possessions, and became the priucipal 
Minister of William tho Lion. Eichard 
married Avicia de Lancaster, who is em- 
phatically mentioned with him as a patronoss 



of the Monks of Melrose. Eichard de Mor- 
villo died in 1 189, and his wifc Avicia in 
1191. They left their opulence and feuda- 
tories to their son Williara, and a daughter, 
Elena, who was destined to carry all those 
enviable objeets into a difiercnt family. 
William acted a conspicuous part towards 
the end of tho twclfth century. He married 
Chriatian, though of what family <locs not a)!- 
pear, but she brought him no issuo ; and he 
died in 119(3. On the death of William 
without lawful children, his high offico and 
vast estates were enjoyed by Elena and hcr 
husband tho Lord of Galloway."

THE PREFACE. vii 

Although the rules of the Order of Prcemonstratenses, thus founded at 
Dryburgh, were the same as thoso observed in other slniilar institutions, and 
■which are well known, it appears approprlate to the present work, and may 
be interesting, as this is the first of the Registers of that rehgious order 
whlch has been published in Scotland, to give a short account of their 
manners and employments. 

In Brltain they vvere usually styled Whitc Canons, from the colour ofoRnEROp 
their dress, which consisted ot a white cassock, with a rochet and cape over it, ti:nsf.3. 
a long white cloak, and a square hat or bonnet, of whitc felt. They likewlse 
wore breeches and shocs, but no shirt. The abbot Avore red shoes, and a 
short cloak, and had a pastoral staff, hke a shepherd's crook. At first they 
were poor, and lived by thelr labour ; but their piety soon gained them 
benefactors, and they became rlch. Their possesslons were exempted from 
paying tlthes ; they were not subject to the bishop's jurisdiction ; and they 
could not be cited before a secular trlbunal. Their tlme was dlvided be- 
tween their rehglous exerclses, the cultlvation of their fields, thelr household 
ofBces, and reading and transcrlblng books. 

Thelr devotlons, whlch were performed seven times a-day, began at a 
very early hour with Matins. They were awakcned by the bell of the dor- 
mitory, whicli was rung as long as would be rcqulred to say the seven penl- 
tentlal psahns ; durlng whlch tlme they dresscd themselves, and said tlielr

to the church, each Indivldual kneeling hi tho mlddlc of the choir, and 
bowing revercntly toAvard tlie altar, bcfore taklng his seat. The matutlnal 
servlce being finlshcd, they returned to bcd, and reposed untll the hour 
cf Prime, or six o'clock, when they were summoned to attend durlncr the

After tbis, they -were accustomcd to remain some time m private prayer m 
tbe church; and some of tbem went to confession, in the cbapter-bonse. 
Sucb exerciscs occupied the time, until the bell rang for bolding tbe daily 
meeting of tbe cbapter ; when they all assembled in the cloister, before pro- 
ceeding to tbe cliapter-bouse ; the transcribers of books, and tbose at work 
out of doors, bastening in to be present witb tbe rest. Every one, as be 
entered, bowed towards the place of dignity ; and tbe abbot, wben they were 
all assembled, invoked a blessing upon tbem. Suitable prayers baving been 
said, a lesson was then read from tbe rules of tbe order ; and the nanies of 
those appointed to anv particular scrvices werc read from tbe rcgister ; 
every one, on bis name being pi'onounced, bowing reverently, in token of 
obedience. Next, the deaths, and otber events to bc commemorated, were 
given out from tbe calendar. Then tlie abbot, standing in bis place, pro- 
nounced the absolution of tbe souls of the clead. Those wbo had been 
convicted of any fault, wcre accustomcd, at this time, to prostrate themselves 
on the ground, and, raaking an bumble confcssion, cntreat forgiveness : 
Penance was enjoined, and, if it was judgcd fit, punishment was sometimes 
inflicted on tbc spot, by tbe prior, or bis deputy. Accusations were 
hkewise heard by the abbot, openly, in tbe chapter, against any one 
under bis jurlsdictioii or autbority. Tbe business being concluded, they 
united in rcpeatlng the cxxx. psalm, " De profundis," unless it happened 
to be a high festival. Tben the abbot or presldent sald, " Our belp 
Is In the name of the Lord," and the rest added, " Who made beaven 
and eartb." In wlnter, the chapter was concluded at the bour of Tierce, 
or nlne o'clock ; and the " Salve Regina " having been givcn out by tbe 
precentor, they proceeded into church, two by two, singlng this hymn. 
In summer, there was an interval before Tlerce, durlng which they wcnt 
about tbeir usual employments. High mass was snng at Tierce in summcr ; 
but at Sexte, or twelve o'clock, in winter.

of their number standing at a desk in the side of the hall, read to them out of 
the Holy Scriptures, or some other edifylng book: and they took this office by 
weekly tnrns. They also waited upon cach othcr at table, in tlie same 
rotatlon ; having taken thcir meal prcviously, along with tlie reader. Thcy 
all stood in their places till blessing was prononnced, after whlch tlic reader, 
having mounted Iiis desk, began to rcad, and thc rest to eat. Only two dlshes 
were allowed, except on particular occaslons, when anothcr, crdlcd a plttance, 
usually consistlng of some sweet, or more dehcate food, was addcd. It was 
brought in after the sccond dish, and presented to thc abbot, or to the persou 
who prcsided in the abbofs place, who caused it to be distrlbuted. Much 
civIHty and pollteness were practised. They wcre atteutlve to each other's 
wants, and Indicated them to thc cellarcr, or to the brother who scrved. They 
bowed to each other on presenting or receiving any thing. He to whom thc 
abbot, or president, sent any thing, first bowed to the servant who brought 
it, and then, rising up a littlc, to the superior who sent It. Those wlio 
came into the hall too late, and without a good excuse for their delay, said 
a Paternoster and an Ave Maria, by way of penance, sat down at thc bottom 
of the least frequented table, and wcre not entltled to any ale or wine, with- 
out the speclal permisslon of the abbot, or presiclent. After dlnner some 
went to repose, otliers conversed till the hour of Nones, or three o'clock, 
when there was anothcr scrvice in the cliurch, at the end of \vliicli thcv 
washcd tlieir hands, and sat down together in the cloister, tlll, a slonal 
being glven, they again entered the refectory, for a few minutes, to 
drink. At slx o'clock they attcnded tlie Vespeks, or cvenlng servicc. The 
Co.MPLETOuiuM, or CoMPLiNE, was sald or sung in church after sevcn ; and 
then taking a light supper, called Collatio, they went to bcd. Shects were 
not allowed, nor any linen, except In sickness ; and thcy all slcpt Iii tlie 
same room, callcd the dormitory, but In scparate beds, in their usual 
clothes. Not content wlth the forty days' abstinence appointed by the 



X THE PREFACE. 

Ordekoh Church, they kept a fast from Holyrood (September 14) till Easter ; 

teI^bT"*"'^ taking no food till after Nones, and abstaining entirely frora flesh. They 
began, however, to relax somewhat of their strict observance of this rule 
before the year 1245; and in 1460, Pope Pius II. gave them power to 
dispense with it. 

In time of hay-making and harvest, they went to work early in the 
morning, and sometimes did not return home till after Vespers ; but were 
bound to recite their prayers in the fields at the canonical hours. On festivals 
they did no work, but read during the time usually appropriated to that 
purpose. Instances, however, occur of special dispensations and permis- 
sions to pcrform work on such occasions. There were no schools in 
raonasteries of this order ; but no onc ignorant of Latin could be admitted 
into it. The lay brethren Avere taught to recite the Creed, tlie Paternoster, 
Ave Maria, and othcr prayers ; but were not allowed books. ' 

The history of the Abbey shall now be shortly traced through its successive 
Abbots and Commendators, so far as these have been ascertained. 

TiiE Abbots I- RoGEK was made the first abbot, — " Rogerus facttis est abbas 
primus," 13th Deceraber 1152.'' He was witncss to a confirmation by thc 
Archdeacon and whole clergy of Lothian, of a composition between 
Melrose and the church of Dunbar, in presence of Richard bishop of St 
Andrews, regarding the tithes of the granges of Edmundeston and Her- 
tesheued.^ He had three bulls addresscd to himself by Pope Alexander III.. 
confirming grants to his abbey, and permitting scrvice thcre in timo of

the great tithes of the parish of Lesseduen, in presence of the four abbots 
of Teviotdale, in the chapel of St Mary Magdalene, in the hospital of 
Rutherford, an ancient custom was cited, according to which, disputes 
occurring between any two were to be settled by the arbitration of the 
remaining abbots ; and abbot James of Dryburgh " respondit quod super 
hoc voluit de novo avisare."* 

20. waiter. XX. Waltek, abbot of the abbey of Drj^burgh, granted a tack, dated 
16th November 1465, in favour of a "worschipful squear, WiUiam HaH- 
burton of Mertoun and Jonet his spous, of a plew of land of the Bouchicoits 
with their pertinents lyand within the lordship of Smailhame, within the 
sherifdome of Tevidale."' On the 4th of March 1466, WiUiam Crayn- 
ston of Corsby knight, as justiciar besouth Forth specially constitute, 
granted a commission to Walter abbot of Dryburgh, to which were wit- 
nesses, Sir Alexander Hume of that ilk, knight, James Haig of Bemer- 
syde, Nicholas Forman of Hutton, and Mr Jasper Cranston, rector of 
Fetteresso.^ In 1472, Walter appears to have been still abbot of Dry- 
burgh;* and the exact period of his death, or demission of office, has not 
been ascertained. 

Walter was probably the abbot of Dryburgh, who on 31st July 1473, 
pursued an action before the Lords Auditors against the Lord Hamiltoun, 
'' for ye wranguiss occupatioun of ye lands of Ingilberisgrange, and ye with- 
haldin of ye mahs of ye samyn, pertening to the said abbot and his convent, 
as was allegit." The Lords found that " the Lord Hamikoun dois na 
wrang in the occupatioun of ye lands, nor takin and holdin of ye mahs and 
proffits yairof." ° 

Nor is it improbable that Walter was still Abbot of Dryburgh on 
Ist July 1476, when another action was "perseuit be a venerable faider

Patrick Painter, principal Secretary of State, dated 14th November 1516, 
which was ratified in Parhament the same day.^ In an Instrument dated

at Rome, was instructed to obtain his nomination to the vacant abbacy, 
setting forth his fitness to rule the monastery in the troubles and disasters 
to which it was exposed.^ Stewart was soon involved in a feud with the 
HaUburtons, neighbours and tenants of the abbey,which was ended for a time 
by the marriage of Agnes Stewart, daughter of the abbot, Avith Walter 
HaHburton. On the 27th June 1537, the abbot, along with his convent, 
executed a declaration in favour of Walter Haliburton and Agnes Stewart, 
his spousc, regarding the lands of Nether Shielfield; ^ and on the 3d of Sep-

Abbey does not appear to have been fully rebuilt after this destruction. 

In the folloAving year, 1545, the commendator of Dryburgh took his 
revenge in an inroad across the EngUsh border.^ 

On the 18th February 1546, Thomas perpetual commendator of the 
monastery of Dryburgh, and convent of the same, granted thc teinds of 
Lauder to Mr Andrew Hume.^ 

30. John XXX. JoHN was commcndator of Dryburgh in 1548, on the 12th 

or ' July of which year he granted a charter, of which only an imperfect note 
has been preserved.* On the 20th March 1554, Johu commendator of 
Dryburgh, with consent of the convent, granted and subscribed at Dry- 
burgh, a tack of two merks of land in Mertoun to Thomas Myll and 
Walter Myll.' 

This Commendator has been called an Erskine, and a Stewart, without any 
sufficient authority being cited for either of the conflicting statements. Thus, 
the late Earl of Buchan, in a letter describing Dryburgh, datedin 1791, states: 

" Of this Abbey my noble and truly excellent ancestor John Erskine, 

afterwards" (Earl of Mar and) " Regent of the Scots, was Commendator 
during the hfetime of his elder brothers, Robert and Thomas, Lords Ers- 
kine."*' Robert the elder brother was killed at the battle of Pinkie in 1547,

ment, their younger brother John had been Commendator at thcse dates. continued. 

On the other hand, it has been stated that this Abbot was John Stewart, 
" the cousin of Lord Darnley, the husband of Mary Queen of Scots," — and 
that " his armorial bearings are still on the Avalls of thc Abbcy, above the 
private entrance into the cloisters for the monks who had overstayed their 
time."' The same author gives a drawing of the arms, under which he calls 
Abbot John Stewart, not cousin, as in the passage just quoted, but uncle 
to Lord Darnley ; and Mr Morton has followed this latter statemcnt.^ 

None of the Charters granted by this Abbot, which have been recovered, 
contain his sirname, and no authority has been found to show whcther he 
was of the Erskine or the Stewart family. The presumptions are, that he 
was of the former. John Erskine, the son of John Loi-d Erskine, was 
Commendator of Inchmahomo 16th August 1552, and he was succeeded in 
that ofRce, in 1556, by his nephew, David Erskine.^ This David Erskine, 
it will be immediately seen, also became Commendator of Dryburgh about 
the same time ; and the probabiHty is, that after John Erskine succeeded to 
the title of Lord Erskine, on the death of his father in 1552, and betook 
himself to new pursuits and «mployments, he had resigned the offices of 
Commendator of Dryburgh and Inchmahomo in favour of his nephew, 
David Erskine. Another nephew, Adam Erskine, son of Thomas Master 
of Erskine, was made Commendator of Cambuskenneth; and these three 
religious houses continued in the Erskine faniily, and were uUimately crected 
into the Temporal Lordship of Cardross, in favour of John Earl of Mar, as 
will be afterwards stated.

xxtI THE PREFACE. 

TheCommen- XXXI, David Erskine, natural son of Robert Mastcr of Erskine by 
^conHmled. Mrs Jean Home, was the next Comtnendator of Di-yburgh. It has been 
seen that he became Commendator of Inchmahomo in 1556, but the exact 
.si. vavid date of his appointment to Dryburgh has not been ascertained. On 27th 
September 1559, he, as Comraendator of Dryburgh, with consent of the 
Convent, granted a Charter in favour of Alexander Ersklne and EHzabeth 
Hahburton, of the six merk land in Mertoun.' And on IGth January 1562, 
David, as Comraendator of Inchmaliomo, with conscnt of the Convent, 
granted a Tack of the Teinds of Newtoun of Down and Wester Row, in 
favour of Allan Ohphant his servitor,^ 

Great events befell the Abbey during David"s connexlon with it. Shortly 
after his appointment to the Commendatorship, the full tide ofthe Reform- 
ation had flowed upon this and the other similar reUgious houses in Scotland. 
Dryburgh, with the others, was annexed to the Crown after the Reforma- 
tion ; but there was a hferent reservation in favour of the Commendator, 
and other possessors of the principal mansions and their precincts, as well 
as the tithes, and they continued their residence at the abbey. This Cora- 
mendator acted a proraincnt part in the stirring affairs of the tiraes ; and it 
will be necessary to give an account of the discliargc of the ofhce which he 
held for a perlod so long and Important.^

THE PREFACE. xxvii 

David Erskino is described by fatber Hay as " an exceeding modest, TheCommen 
honest, and sbame-faced man." He was of tbe Reform party, and a follower contimled. 
of the Regent Murray. He was made a pri^^y councillor in 1579 ;' and by 
tbe Act of Parliament in 1572, appointing tbe yoiuig Earl of Mar governor 
to James VI., during bis minority, " tlie friendis of tbe bouse of Erskine, 
Robert Erll of Bucban, David commendator of Dryburgb, Alexander 
Erskine of Gogar, Wilbam Douglas of Locblevin." were naraed assistants 
to the Earl in tbe office. Erskine of Gogar, wbo was uncle of tbe Earl, 
took tbe cbief cbarge of tbe young King. On tbe suggestion of tbe Regent 
Morton, Mar turned out bis uncle, and became master of tbe King's person, 
and tbe Castle of Stirbng, in 1578 ; and afterwards, in 1582, be joined tbe 
Earl of Gowrie in seizing tbe King at tbe Raid of Rutliven. 

In tbese proceedings of bis cbief, tbe " modest and boncst " commendator Fur/eiiui-e o/ 
David was a participator, witb many otbers of tbe Erskines. Tbey were skine, com-

confiscated to tbe crown. 

During tbe residence of the coramcndator in England, David Home of 
Argatie, a dependant of tbe Earl of Mar, was indicted and tried on 8tb 
December 1584, for " tbe tressonabill baifing intelligence fra Johne sumtym

THE PREFACE. xxix 

On lOth June 1600, a Lease of teiuds of tlie Mains of Mertoun was TheCommen- 
granted by David, commendator of Dryburgli; and instead of its bearing contimled. 
the usual consent of tbe convent, it states, as a reason for being granted 
by the coramendator alone, that " all the convent tliairof now being Deccise <,/ aii 

the cniivent, 
deceSSlt. ' ' sfac«rf m 1600. 

There is something plaintive in this declaration of the death of all 
his compeers by the sole surviving representativc of this rehgious house, 
which was itself destined, in a short time thereafter, to undergo a further 
change. 

It will be shown that in 1604 James VI. inchided the Abbacy of Dry- 
burgh in the Temporal Lordship and Barony of Cardross, erected in 
favour of John Earl of Mar, but there was reserved to thc Commendator 
the Rents, Profits, and Emoluments of the Lands and others. 

In virtue of this reservation, David continued to grant Leases of certain 
of the teinds belonging to the abbey. One of the Leases bears date 
30th May 1608, being about fifty years after the first Lease by him above 
mentioned, which shows that he had enjoyed his benefice for half a century. 
This last Lease bears, in the old form, to be with consent of the convent, 
although they had all "decessit" at least eight years previously. It is 
subscribed by David alone.^ 

The granting of this Lease must havc been among the last ofHcial acts of 
David Erskine, commendator of Dryburgh ; as it is stated in a Deed of 
Provision by James VL, dated on 31st May 1608, being only tho day after 
the last-mentioned Lease, and to bc immediately noticed, that the abbacy Avas 
then vacant, and in his Majesty's hands as patron, through the demission of 
David commendator of the abbacy of Dryburgh. 

After having been so long connccted with Dryburgh, David demitted his

XXXIII. Henry Erskiue, second lawfnl son of Jolin Earl of Mar and 
Lady Mary Stewart, second daugliter of Esme first Duke of Lennox, was 
next made abbot and commendator of Dryburgh. On 31st May 1608, James 
VI. granted a Provision in his favour, making and constituting him " Indu- 
bitatum et irrcvocabilem abbatem et commendatarium abbacie nostre de 
Drvburgh, ac priorem prloratus de Inchmahomo totius ac spirituaUtatis dic-

from this record that David was Archde.vn

him in tliat character at Wliitsunday 1611, by 
the Laird of Auldbar, as representing his 
father, the sum of L.lOoS Scots for feu- 
duties of the lands of the Drums. By his

presumed that James Erskine, their son and

THE PREFACE. sxxi 

It wlll be afterwards sliown that Henry Erskine was assigned by his 
father to the Fee of the Lordship and Peerage of Cardross, and that he 
predeceased his father in 1628. 

A brief account of Dryburgh, after it was converted to lay and temporal 
purposes, will now complete its history, 

Shortly before the Reformation, the Abbots and Convent granted several History of 

DRTBURnH 

feu-rights of part of the Abbey Lands. In reference to two of these ori- iA«- f^e 

_ _ _ _ _ Beformation. 

ginal Feus, and the present partition of Dryburgh into two distinct Estates, 
with separate Mansion-Houses to each, both situated near to the Abbey, a 
httle explanation seems necessary. 

One portion of the Estate of Dryburgh, with the Mansion-House now 
called Dryburgh Abbey,' and which is adjacent to, and on the south side of 
the Ruins of the Abbey, belongs to the Earl of Buchan. As this portion 
comprehends the ruins, and a great part of the Church Lands, its history 
will be afterwards more particularly stated. 

The other portion of the Estate of Dryburgh, with the Mansion-House 

also adjacent to, and on the north slde of the Rulns of the Abbey, now 

belongs to Charles Rlddell, Esq. The orlglnal House, Mhlch was called the 

Mantle House, was built by Alcxandcr Erskine, the founder of the Shlel- 

fieldfamlly, In 1559, on ground fcued from the Commendator. Thls house 

was occupled by the Erskines of Shlclfield, as thelr family residence, they 

being also portloners in Dryburgh, for a period of 234 years, tlll the year 

1793, when they sold It along wlth thelr Lands at Dryburgh to Mr Rld- 

dell, who pulled It down, and replaced it wlth the present Manslon.^ 

' Tliis Mansion-House, it is said, was origi- burgh in 1786, made considerable additions 

ually built by George Haliburton, in the year to the House, proparatory to adopting it as 

1572, on a piece of ground feued from the his residence. (Memorials of the Haliburtons

An Act of Parhament was afterwards, on 1 Ith July 1606, obtained for the 
erection of the said Abbeys and Priory into a Temporal Lordship, called the 
Lordship of Cardross, which narrates that " the samyn monasteries and su- 
perstitiouns thairof being now abohshit and the kirk landis of the samin now 
annexit to his hienes' crowne." It also narrates the previous charter, dated 
27th March 1604, and ratifies the same; and dissolves from the Act of An- 
nexation to the Crown, the lands, &c., of the said abbacies, and of new gives 
and grants to the Earl, "his heirs maill and assignaijis heretable," the man-

xxxiv THE PREFACE. 

HisTORT OF John Haliburton, mercliant in Edinburgh, his eldest son by Janet Campbell, 
cmitinwd!' daughter of Robert Campbell, of Northwoodside, whom faihng to Robert 
HaHburton his second son, of all and whole that part and portion of the 
lordship of Cardross, formerly the abbacy of Dry-burgh.' This Charter 
also contained the parts of Dryburgh which Thomas Hahburton previously 
held in feu, and on which his ancestor erected a Mansion-House, as akeady 
explained ; but there were excepted in this Charter the parts of Dryburgh 
whlch then belonged to the Erskines of Shielfield, and which had never 
pertained to Sir Patrick Scott. 

Robert Hahburton having succeeded to the estate of Dryburgh, in terms 

of the destination in the said charter, sold the same to Lieut.-Colonel 

Charles Tod, in the service of the Honourable East India Company, for the 

price of L.5500, by disposition dated 15th and 28th September 1767-^ 

„. ,„ , The Hahburtons of Newmains were the maternal ancestors of Sir 

Sir Walter 

tmecon'""'^ Walter Scott, and he has himself stated their connexion with Dryburgh. 
HaiZnoHs He says, " Robert Scott of Sandy-knowe married, in 1728, Barbara Hah- 
burgh''^' burton, daughter of Thomas Hahburton of Newmains, an ancient and 
respectable family in Berwickshire. Among other patrimonial possessions, 
they enjoyed thc part of Dryburgh, now the property of the Earl of Buchan, 
comprehending the ruins of the abbey. My granduncle, Robert Hahburton, 
havino- no male heirs, this estate, as well as the representation of the family, 
would have devolved upon my father, and indeed Old Newmains had set- 
tled it upon him ; but this was prevented by the misfortunes of my grand- 
uncle, a weak silly man, who engaged in trade, for whicli he had neither 
stock nor talents, and became bankrupt. The ancient patrimony was sold 
for a trifle (about L.3000);^ and my father, who might have purchased it 
with ease, was dissuaded by my grandfather, who at that time beheved a 
more advantageous purchase might have been made of some lands which 
Raeburn thought of selUng. And thus we have nothing left of Dryburgh, 
although my father's maternal inheritance, but the right of stretching our

xxxvi THE PREFACE. 

HisTOKT 01 The estate of Dryburgh ■vvas again sold, in 1786, by Colonel Tod's 

Dhvbubgu, 

routimied. trustees, to David, late Earl of Buchan, who thus re-acquired the part of 

IfBlfhafi^ac ^^^^ pvoperty which had belonged to his ancestors, the Earl of Mar and the 

'burli^"''' Lords Cardross. In 1810, his Lordship executed an entail, in virtue of 

which, on his death in 1829, his son, the late Sir David Erskine, succeeded 

to Dryburgh, and on whose death, without issue, in 1837, the present Earl 

of Buchan, the nephew of Earl David, became the proprietor.' 



Having thus traced the History of this once famous Rehgious House 

through its various vicissitudes, from its Foundation to the present time, 

we shall close these Prefatory Remarks wlth a parting glance at the situa- 

tion and ruins of the Abbey. 

situationof Dryburgh is situated in the parish of Mertoun, on the south-western 

the Abbey, its J a r 

rmm.appear- ponfines of thc countv of Bcrwick. It stands three miles below Melrose, 

ance, ^t. •' ' 

and ten miles above Kelso, on a fiat sequestered lawn, on the north side of 
the Tweed, nearly surrounded by one of its finest tui-ns, with high woody 
banks on every side, and in sight of the celebrated and picturesque Eildon 
Hills, the Trimontium of the Romans. Such a situation seems to have 
been pecuUarly suited for retirement from the world and the enjoyment of 
the recluse monastic Hfe. 

The abbey and its church have been so often ruined and repaired, altered 
and added to, that it becomes difficult to trace the plan of the building, or 
to ascertain the age of its different parts. There is nothing, however, in 
Dr)'burgh which the student of early architecture can place before the 
twelfth century, and but Httle of that period is preserved. The now roofless 
ruins, covered here and there with ivy, and intermingled with lofty trees, 
contrasting with the beauty of the surrounding scenerj^, render the whole 
remarkably imposing and picturesque. 

^ Title-deeds of Dnburgh in the possessiou of the Earl of Buclian. 



THE PREFACE. xxxvii 

Dryburgb, since it became the grave of Scott, has been invested with an 
additional interest. It was preferred by him, that his own remains mioht 
mingle with those of his maternal ancestors, the HaHburtons. But it was, 
in any view, a fitting place of sepulture for the Great Minstrel of the Scot- 
tish Border. There, amidst the dust of the powerful De Morvilles, and 
many a holy Abbot and Monk of old, and surrounded by the ashes 6i his 
own "rough clan," under walls scorched in many a Border foray, in the 
heart of the valley he lovcd so well, and of the scenes he sung, he the 
mortal remains of that miglity Master who has thrown a charm over the 
country, its history, and its traditions, that will hve as long as theinselves. 

Edinbukgh, October 1847.
